The University assumes certain legal responsibilities for persons who participate as students in the University environment. As a result, specific requirements must be met in order to be eligible to remain enrolled for a current term or enroll in a subsequent term. A hold prevents the student from taking necessary actions to adjust their record. Holds may be related to academic, financial, advising, student health, or conduct reasons, and must be resolved by the student to enroll in courses, including add/drop, or to receive the diploma. Holds may also prevent a student's access to various campus resources. Based on the type of hold and the impact of the hold, Cornell University reserves the right to withdraw a student at any point of the term. If a student is withdrawn, re-enrollment in the same term is not guaranteed. If a student subsequently re-enrolls, the student will be assessed a late registration fee.
